What Is Davao City Famous For?

Davao City combines urban grit with deep roots to the rich land typical of the Philippines. With Mount Apo looming majestically in the distance, Davao City looks like it has been plucked from a painting and brought to life, evident by its close proximity to forested slopes and white-sand beaches. Offering a fascinating insight into traditional Filipino life, Davao City provides several opportunities for visitors to soak in the beauty of various cultural sites, partake in hair-raising activities and snap pictures from every angle of the scenic landscape laid before them in this picturesque city.

What to See in Davao City, Philippines

  • Roxas Avenue Night Market: Taste the real Davao City as you explore the celebrated Roxas Avenue Night Market. Live like a local and peruse through the various stalls that offer freshly cooked delicacies and street food. An ongoing party throughout the night, Roxas Avenue is lit up in golden lights and exudes authentic charm, as well as a cacophony of sounds and medley of mouthwatering scents.
  • Mount Apo: The “King of Philippine Peaks,” Mount Apo is one of Southeast Asia’s highest mountains. Reaching an elevation of 10,311 feet, Mount Apo is literally the grandfather of all mountains — tall and has never blown its top. Starkly visible in the morning air as it towers above Davao, Mount Apo is concealed by a thick blanket of clouds only hours later. Believed to be the residence of deities and worshipped as a sacred mountain, several pilgrimages endure the mountain’s treacherous incline. The four-day trip up and back is tough, but there are rewards for those who keep their eyes and ears open while ascending the Kidapawan Trail, in the forms of colorful birds across 272 species.
